Reviews

Give [Evaristo] more prizes! All the prizes! It has the pace of a whistle stop tour and yet it seems no detail of the myriad of lives we encounter is missed. -- Graham Norton via Twitter
If you haven't discovered [Evaristo] yet, I urge you to read all and any of her books. Devoured one a day already and ordered more. Hilarious, compassionate, moving and brutally honest. -- Richard E Grant via Twitter
Beautifully interwoven stories of identity, race, womanhood, and the realities of modern Britain. The characters are so vivid, the writing is beautiful and it brims with humanity. -- Nicola Sturgeon via Twitter
Weaves through time and space with crackling originality * Vogue *
Exuberant, bursting at the seams in delightful ways... Evaristo continues to expand and enhance our literary canon. If you want to understand modern day Britain, this is the writer to read * New Statesman *
An exceptional book that unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. Order it right now * Stylist *
Evaristo's prose hums with life as characters seem to step off the page fully formed. At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards * Red *
Brims with vitality * FT *
With this rich composition, Evaristo deserves a toast * Literary Review *
Masterful... A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain * Elle *
'Girl, Woman, Other is about struggle, but it is also about love, joy and imagination. * Guardian *
Threads together the diverse life stories of 12 black British women in ways that deliberately resist categorisation * Metro *
Such a satisfying read, funny and true, the characters are so real you feel you know them already -- Miranda Sawyer via Twitter
A warm, humorous and ambitious novel, and one that is enjoyably playful in style. It is both a product of its time and unlike any book ever written about Britain * Economist *
My favorite book of 2019 . . . the most absorbing book I read all year. This novel is a master class in storytelling. It is absolutely unforgettable. When I turned the final page, I felt the ache of having to leave the world Evaristo created but I also felt the excitement of getting to read the book all over again. It should have won the Booker alone. It deserves all the awards and then some. -- Roxanne Gay
